Percussionist Lary Barilleau leads his new Latin Jazz Collective on the next Jazz Northwest, Sunday, May 20 at 1 pm PDT on 88.5, KPLU.

The Latin Jazz Collective includes multi-instrumentalist Jay Thomas, Eric Verlinde, piano, Jeff Norwood, bass and Ricardo Guity, congas. Lary Barilleau has recorded a new CD "Carmen's Mambo" with musicians from Seattle, San Francisco and New York which will be released later this year.
